The influence of changes in spatial and temporal resolutions on functional parameters in the left ventricle (LV) were investigated with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with a modified true fast imaging with steady-state precession, or FISP, two-dimensional sequence that provided temporal resolution of 21-90 msec and spatial resolution of 1-3 mm. MR imaging in the heart was performed in 15 healthy volunteers. A decrease in LV functional parameters was observed with reduced spatial and temporal resolutions. The influence of temporal resolution was more relevant.
